Damon Lindelof Apologizes for Alice Eve’s Underwear Scene in Star Trek Into Darkness

Star Trek Into Darkness screenwriter Damon Lindelof has apologized for the scene, which was extremely gratuitous and unnecessary.

He said, “I copped to the fact that we should have done a better job of not being gratuitous in our representation of a barely clothed actress.  We also had Kirk shirtless in underpants in both movies.  Do not want to make light of something that some construe as misogynistic.  What I’m saying is I hear you, I take responsibility and will be more mindful in the future.”
